Ms. Marvel is going to be released by Marvel Studios. It’s looking like the series will be a hit on Disney+. The series will be one of the last to come out of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so the studio is putting out all the stops. All of the Phase Four projects have been set after the movie. The exception is Black Widow. We know when Ms. Marvel is in the MCU. Bisha K. Ali is a head writer for the comic book company. The series takes place in the present time.
“So, I think right now, we haven’t put an official number on how many years have gone by since Endgame,” Ali told the website. “I cannot tell you off the top of my head because I would butcher it. I feel like it’s one to two years [after Avengers: Endgame], something like that, but I don’t actually remember [specifically]. But we do have that in our timeline.”
Fans have been upset about the changes to the character’s power set that will be shown on the Disney+ streaming service. One of the creators of the character defended the reasoning behind the change.
“Obviously, so much of the show is an adaptation, and we thought it was important to make sure that her powers are linking to larger stories in the Marvel universe. We wanted to make sure there is a little bit more story to tell after this series,” Amanat began. “Obviously, she goes into The Marvels. The powers do look different, which is very controversial. I know people are like, “How dare you to change the powers!” I know people are upset about it, but as someone who’s probably one of the closest people to this character from the inception, and having spoken to Willow about this as well, I think Willow and I have always felt that this made sense. This was the right move because there are bigger stories to tell.”
Here’s how Disney+ describes the series: “Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega-fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?”
